Only one team in America beat two AP top 25 teams last week:

Your Purdue Boilermakers.

Sure, it wasn't beating a pair of top 5 teams in succession, but blowing out the No. 25 team at home and squeezing out a win on the road over the No. 17 team were huge for Purdue's profile. The Boilers were in danger of slipping out of the top 25 for the first time in almost two years, but these wins not only solidified their spot, they provided a major boost from the previous No. 23 spot.

Here is the AP Poll, where Purdue jumps seven spots back up to No. 16:
